Britain’s Next Breakout Rapper J Hus Drops his Debut Album ‘Common Sense’
Momodou Jallow is a young man from London that has burst onto the UK’s hip hop scene presenting something completely unique from your typical grime or classic rap sound. Running under the moniker J Hus, he uses his Gambian heritage to bring in elements of dancehall and Afrobeat, mixing them with contemporary grime and hip hop approaches resulting in a much more vibrant take on the genre–a refreshing alternative to the typical rap-related sounds that you’ll find coming out of Great Britain.
Having already garnered a lot of traction within his hoe town with a loyal local fanbase, Hus is now starting to emerge oversees, especially with the release of his debut full-length studio album entitled Common Sense, sitting at 17 tracks long. The project brings in fellow UK rap cohorts Mo Stacks, MIST, Burna Boy and Tiggs Da Author, lending a good level of diversity to the project that already meanders between the more chill, afro-centric beats to your good ol’ hard-hitting grime number. J Hus serves as the example of where the capital is at right now with its multi-cultural, globally inspired musical landscape, and should definitely be put on your radar. Have a listen to Common Sense above, as well as the audio visuals to the album’s eponymously titled single, and stay tuned for more to come from the 20-year-old ‘artist to watch.’
